I have mixed feelings about this book.

Don't be fooled by the cover depicting a man hugging a horse!
This book is allegedly-true stories about horse traders who abused and hurt their animals in ways not tolerated today.

It's a great history and educational book, good for colleges and libraries. One can see glimpses of U.S. States prior to 1920. I appreciate the section explaining how the tales were collected.
It does have a glossary, good if you're writing a story with horses.

However, much of the content is upsetting, especially if you respect horses. The men in these tales abuse sick horses and harm them just to get one over on other traders. I couldn't believe some of their methods: placing rocks in ears to get the horse to shake, burning them with acid, using cocaine on a sick animal to spruce it up. Even if these particular stories are false, you can be sure these tactics were used, and it's very sad. Oh, and it was acceptable to kick your dog too.

The ASPCA existed back then, but wasn't taken seriously, as noted in one account.

Again, this is a good history book, but for tough hearts only.
Not for children or any teens who might act out some of these "horse tricks".

I'm impressed with these horse sellers...they did some amazing negotiations and product development. They were honest in their own way and I liked the competition between sellers and buyers..sometimes the shark was the guppy and didn't know it.
